Sweet Potato Toast
Sweet potato toast has been sweeping the internet, and at first I thought it was a weird internet hack, but after a little experimentation it turns out it actually works! Not only is it rather easy to make it, it’s quite tasty too, and can be swapped for regular toast for a sweet or savoury satisfying snack.
I absolutely love sweet potatoes. Since I don’t eat a ton of grains, they are a staple food in my diet providing a great source of complex carbohydrates to help me fuel and recovery from all of my workouts. I typically roast them into wedges or fries, bake them whole or add them to soups or stews, but this toast idea is a great addition to my repertoire! Not only are sweet potatoes rich in vitamin A and C, but they are lower glycemic than standard bread making them a great alternative for those limiting carbohydrates or trying to lose weight. Simple to make and ready in a pinch, sweet potato toast makes a healthy breakfast or filling snack.

You can certainly eat it on it’s own or paired with your morning eggs, however there are a variety of different spreads you can use to give it a little twist.
